Organza bags kept the items organized. These were appropriately yellow and blue for summer.

The theme for August is ‘Enjoy the Salt Life!’ Everything had a summery beach theme.

Custom Made Sea Tote Bag –  Listed Value $9.99

This simple cotton tote is perfect for summer. The decoration is a decal, so it might not hold up well in the wash, but it’s a cute beachy design. It doesn’t look like these are in their shop yet, but Bonjour Jolie promises that 100% of the sale of these bags will benefit the Pensacola Wildlife Sanctuary

Beach Waves Sea Salt Spray, 8 fl oz. –  Value $12

Bonjour Jolie‘s self-branded beauty items are usually great, so I’m always happy to see them in the box. This is an ‘all natural, alcohol-free sea salt spray to add texture and waves without making your hair sticky or drying it out.’ I gave it a try and someone complimented me on my hair soon after, which almost never happens! True to the description, my hair didn’t feel sticky or crunchy, so I will definitely keep using this.

Advil Pain Reliever, 2 packets of 2 capsules – Value $0.40

Summer’s Eve Sheer Floral Cleansing Cloth –  Value $0.90

These basics are always included in every Bonjour Jolie box.

Albert’s Marshmallow Snow Cones, 2 cones – Value $0.40 (buy 1 bag of 10 cones for $1.99 or 12 bags for $19.95)

These little cones are made in the USA and taste a lot like marshmallow Peeps. They’re very sweet indeed – I don’t think I could eat many in one sitting, so two was a perfect number. 

Bonjour Jolie August 2017 Period Subscription Box

Tropical Skittles, 2.17 oz. – Value $1.00 (buy a box of 36 for $35.95)

I can never recognize exactly what these are meant to taste like, but they’re sharp and fruity. I like the tropical variation.

Salt Water Taffy Mix, 5 pieces – Listed Value $1 (buy 1 pound for $6.99)

A beachy box wouldn’t be complete without saltwater taffy! The pink taffy was best – it was a hot cinnamon. I’d never tried cinnamon taffy before, but now I want more of it! These came in their own organza bag.

Chuppa Chups Lollipops, 2 pieces – Value $0.33 (buy a box of 120 for $19.99)

Lollipops are always a welcome addition, and you can’t go wrong with chocolate and strawberry.

Fiber One Lemon Bar, 0.89 oz. – Value $0.50 (buy a box of 6 for $2.98)

This Fiber One bar had a nice lemon taste, but it was a little too sweet for me. I can’t figure out if it’s more of a cake, bar or cookie, but whatever it is, it’s not bad.

Swedish Fish, 4 pieces – Value $0.17 (buy a box of 240 pieces for $9.98)

Swedish fish are so cute and cheerful; they’re one of my favorite candies.

Adam’s Luscious Teas, 4 packets – Value $0.40 (buy a box of 100 for $10.00)

This tea’s packaging is packed full of adjectives: luscious, succulent, exquisite, legendary! I had high expectations, but the tea is just ok. Fine, really, but I wouldn’t necessarily seek out more of it. The lemon was my favorite. 

Verdict: I estimated a value of $27.09, which is above the $16.50 price. With the variety of items, I always feel like I get a lot in this box. Everything about it felt beachy – Bonjour Jolie‘s curation is always on point when there’s a specific theme. I did find myself wishing there was a savory snack to balance all the sweetness, but the cinnamon taffy was a nice discovery. 

What do you think of August’s Bonjour Jolie box? What’s your favorite sweet summer treat?

  1. Hi! Do you know if this subscription box is still available? I got a bounce-back from their email on the “contact us” page, and I see that August was your last review of it.

    Thanks!

  2. I love this box! I have been getting it for a few years now. I am pregnant so I get the “just the goods” option for now. When I have this LO I will switch back to the regular box. It is fun, and comes with a great theme every month. With 3 kids it really makes my life easier when I do have a period, I am always stocked with everything zi need each month!!

    • I’ve gotten it off and on for years too. I don’t stay subscribed all the time but it’s one of my favourites that I always come back to.

  3. What brand are the tampons or pads maybe it didn’t load for me I didn’t see if you posted them

    • This review is for the ‘Just the Goods’ version and doesn’t contain tampons or pads. You can pick the brand you want if you pick the with menstrual products version on the Bonjour Jolie website.
